Watchers

Journal History

I'm sure these words have been uttered by someone else out there at some point, but I just have to say...

OCD and story writing don't always mix well.

In this journal, I'm specifically talking about naming characters. And even mooooore specifically, naming the main character. You know, that one recurring character who will be the main subject of your story, hence the importance of giving them a name that fits and flows. It's just, while trying to think of a good name for the protagonist of one of my stories, nothing seems to feel right. I've pondered it on and off for the past couple months, and still nothing. Sometimes I'm like "Aha!" but then a few seconds later I change my mind. I do believe a fitting name exists but I still have yet to think of/find one. And just to stress how "OCD" I can be about naming things, I should mention that it took me 3 years to finally settle on a name for my pet goldfish. MY GOLDFISH!! So yeah... I can't actually get myself to write about a character until I have their name, so I'm in a pickle. It's like one little dam stopping the whole river of ideas from flowing properly.

....Of course I'm not actually looking for name suggestions(I mainly wrote this just to blow off some steam) but if anyone happens to have any pointers regarding the naming process of characters, it would be appreciated.
